HONG KONG (AP) — Talk about our consumer culture gone wild.
A Hong Kong shopping mall received a visit from a ham-fisted customer when a wild boar wandered in and got trapped inside a children’s clothing store.
Local media reported on the Sunday night misadventure.
TV video showed the boar, which had apparently climbed up a ladder in the shop’s back room, punching a hole through the showroom’s false ceiling with a hoof.
News reports said the animal was a 25-kilogram (55-pound), meter-long (3-foot-long) juvenile female.
Shoppers squealed in amazement as the boar clambered down onto the top of display case, jumped to the floor and skittered around the shop, knocking over mannequins and signs.
The boar was eventually tranquilized and taken to an animal rehab center, the South China Morning Post reported.
